Help BLS, ACLS, PALS useful for residency application?

Hi guys, im not sure whether to do BLS and then ACLS afterwards right now...
some say its not useful since those you will be doing while in residency but when applying to residencies they ASK if you have those accreditations... so i think the program directors maybe find it a PLUS for your resume?

please someone who have done those help me, thanks!!

i think it adds something to an otherwise lackluster cv.
i would prefer to do it considering my cv isnt that good.

If I were a program director I wouldn't look at it much. Most hospitals offer ACLS, BLS at PGY1 orientation because they know most AMGs ACLS/BLS certifications expire after they finish med school. Its something every intern must have before they began PGY1.
